After our return back to the "World", the good Lt Col filed for retirement and disability which included PTSD for that one week. Further, the word was there were no attacks during his one week. Finally, while at Bagram, we endured one, yes one, attack. There was a single round mortar/rocket fired into the ground between the taxiway and active runway. That means no people were around for at least 100 meters.

Let all that sink in for a minute.
Ya, I know guys with stories like that too. That is what I was alluding to.
A friend/ neighbor who was in Nam just happened to be at the VA for a checkup. He was talking to another guy while a bene manager was there and comparing war stories.Mind you, this guy is almost 70 and right as rain.
Long story short, agent orange was mentioned. Next thing he knew he was in his office filling out some paperwork. He ended up getting $1200 a month extra for life !!!. This guy is a millionaire from his own business ventures but he wasn't about to turn it down. It was explained to him that Obama money was flowing freely and now was the time to get it. He got it and he's still tighter than two coats of paint. One cheap SOB.
All legal too.

Don't feel bad. I got into an argument with my g/f because she was trying to convince me that somehow Donald Trump is more of a womanizer than was Bill Clinton. I told her that her logic had so many holes in it I could use it to practice my putting.

Hasn't spoken to me since.

I just hope the mania blows over soon.... My daughter's mentality is actually concerning me. My wife is normally a whack job, so it's kind of normal, so I can pretty much handle that.

The g/f is limited to 48 hours of whack job time. Then she gets walking papers.

Clinton must be the Wilt Chamberlain of presidents in that regard. Gosh though, looking at his spouse, it's hard to blame him. Thomas, no offense intended.
